Your Inter-Active, Inter-Galactic Creative Play Space
It’s natural to feel a little hesitant about where to begin or how to continue. Alternately, you might have a crystal clear idea of how you think it should look or be and become paralyzed by perfection or confined by the choke collar of comparison.
Here are a few suggestions to get you started, some ideas for inspiration and some petite pushes to point you away from perfectionism and into possibility which actual is perfect!
REMINDER #1 - There is no right or wrong - there is only exploration, experimentation and play.
Ways to add colour
Add just one colour of paint and playing with brush strokes - pushing and spreading the paint intuitively
Add some stripes - horizontal, vertical, alternating colours or blank space
Try some resistance painting using washi tape instead of dots or scribble with the beeswax and then add paint
Use dots, stickers or washi tape to add colour, create borders or text blocks
Use a crumpled pieces of scrap paper to apply paint for a dappled look. Try with one colour or more.
Apply paint to a very wet surface and cover with a piece of thin, flexible plastic. Squish paint around and then let dry. Remove plastic.
If there is a bit of wet paint still on the plastic rub onto another piece of paper for a blotchy effect.
